Description

An illustrated edition of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jared Diamond's groundbreaking book, adapted for a new generation of readers

The Third Chimpanzee was first published in 1991 and has been in print ever since. This new, illustrated edition is aimed at a young readership. In it, Jared Diamond explores what makes us human and poses fascinating questions.





If we share more than 98% of our DNA with chimpanzees, how is it that we can write, read, talk, build telescopes and bombs, while we put our speechless and bomb-less close relatives in cages and zoos?
What can woodpeckers teach us about spacecraft?
Is genocide a human invention?
Why does extinction matter?
Why are we destroying the natural resources on which we depend for survival?
What hope is there for future generations?


Not only is The Third Chimpanzee a mind-boggling survey of how we came to be, but it is also a plea to the next generation to "make better decisions than their parents and get us out of the mess we're in."
